Formally adopted by the Board of Higher Education in June 2007, the Oregon University System Information Security Policy has been incorporated as OAR 580-055-0000 and is available at:
This policy identifies eight areas where policies and procedures are required to be adopted by each institution in the system and contains some minimum requirements for each area. This manual is organized to address all eight areas.
Passed by the 2007 Oregon Legislature as Senate Bill 583 and signed into law by the Governor, this law requires entities who collect “personal information” on Oregon residents to adopt administrative and technical safeguards to protect it. It also requires notification in the event of a security breach involving this information. More information can be found at:
